one. what do you think of that? >> barack obama has a problem. >> that is an understatement. >> he has got an afghan government that is an unworthy partner in this adventure. he is part -- he has karzai, who is a clerk, corrupt, involved in that heroin business, and there is no indication that anything will happen to him. he has a week afghan government to work with. he now estimates the decision about what to do with what general mcchrystal has recommended. -- he now has to make a decision about what general mcchrystal has recommended. all signs are that it will be along the lines of mcchrystal lite, not t give him 40,000 troops -- but >> it reminds me of 1972 in south viet nam or the president ran for reelection, only nobody ran against him so "choose the one, the only one at." [laughter] >> can you have confidence in karzai? >> it is diminishing on the part of the british. prime minister gordon brown made clear that those troops -- >> a single military officer -- sound familiar? >> an afghan they were treating -- there were certain tests that have to be bad and probably cannot be me
: the obama administration is trying to put the best possible spin on the afghanistan election. white house correspondent wendell goler tells us how. >> president obama spoke at a picture-taking session with the prime minister of sweden minutes after placing a phone call to afghan president hamid karzai which mr. obama said was not just to congratulate him. >> i emphasized that this has to be a point in time in which we begin to write a new chapter, based on improved governance, a much more serious effort to eradicate corruption. >> the president called the election messy. his aides said the democratic process worked in afghanistan even though the u.s.-backed leader tried to subvert it. >> two commissions determined that a serries are of votes, a big chunk of votes were fraudulent and they were thrown out as required, and the sitting president had to go through a second round. i think that demonstrates that the laws and institutions of afghanistan worked. >> u.s. officials said abdullah abdullah's decision not to contest the recount reflected his belief he had no chance to win, but aides sa

: the race could not be tighter. president obama won in new jersey by 15 points last year. now incumbent governor jon corzine is in a dead heat with his republican challenger chris christie. there is no mistaking how high the political mistakes are. the president campaigned for course 93 times. former new york mayor rudy giuliani was there as well. is the star power paying off for either of the candidates? >> in the latest polls that came out yesterday, and does not look like anyone got a significant advantage. 9 and jon corzine or chris christie. -- neither jon corzine or chris christie. you mentioned the governor had some campaigning with the president. they talk about being partners together. of course, the president got this state by 15 points last year, and the white house is heavily invested in making sure that it remains blue. the republicans have called in big names like rudy giuliani. he has stayed in the race, something that is not very easy to do here in new jersey. both candidates remain confident about their chances of winning, but so far the poles are in a dead -- polls are
president obama time to decide if he'll send additional troops to afghanistan. white house said all along they won't make a decision on the troop levels here until this afghan election has been resolved. by all appearances now it will be president karzai. there is the issue of legitimacy. the short one, it gives a new government for the u.s. and other international partners to work with. this is part of the basis of adding troops is there must be a credible, viable partner in afghanistan. everything that has happened with this election process has cast doubt whether or not hamid karzai is that viable credible partner. the corruption is so wide and widespread across all of the government here. there is a real concern that going forward this election may just embolden hamid karzai and prevent him from firing the officials that the u.s. would like to see fired. shannon? >> shannon: now reporting live for us from afghanistan. thank you very much for the update, connor. so what implications will abdullah's withdrawal have for the u.s.? caroline shively standing by with the look at that angle.
the army really believes that. i think the obama administration is more skeptical. >> lauren, there are two schools of thought on the president's protracted process. one is dick cheney school of the president dithering and that he is patient. what repercussions are there for the policy? >> well, our allies are looking to us for a very clear signal as to whether we are going to commit. unfortunately the rhetoric of the president's early months has become a good deal less, shall we say, aggressive, less decisive than where he began. obviously the pakistanis are concerned there might be decline in our commitment to the situation and, frankly, i think what they're detecting is right. i don't think the administration wants to do this. they're trying to figure out some way of extricating themselves, or at least not building up any further, but it is awfully hard. they have boxed themselves in. >> greg's excellent story in the washington post today about how obama is going through province by province to find out the leaders. that is like lbj poring over maps in the vietnam white house in the seco
, war news. president obama will announce his decision on afghanistan in a primetime speech next week. and he's expected to give general mcchrystal 35,000 more troops, slightly less than the 40,000 the general asked for. the decision will perhaps quiet charges from dick cheney and those on his side that he's dithering on afghanistan. but now the president will have to confront the liberal wing of his own party, who see this as nothing short of an escalation of war, even a new war. so can president obama sell his troop commitment to leading democrats? can he fight a war mainly dependent on republican voters? and how will it sell to an increasingly skeptical american public? >>> plus, you're not going to like this picture. president obama may have republicans on his side when it comes to afghanistan, but his decision to try 9/11 mastermind khalid shaikh mohammed up in new york federal court has given them another reason for attack. and now an attorney for one of ksm's co-defendants says all five detainees plan to plea not guilty and act as their own lawyers in court so that they can, qu

between elements of the business community willing to support the direction obama is going and the fact is virtually uniform opposition even among republicans in congress while that is occurring? >> 60 votes in the senate, the margins in the house -- let's talk as pollsters. here's what is important -- when you ask people was the stimulus a good idea or bad idea, it was $787 billion. there were some republican ideas that were good ideas and would do more to create jobs that were ignored. in late march, they bought general motors and chrysler. what happened is that back to back in a three day time frame, people said another trillion dollars and for a lot of americans, they said what? the american government owns general motors and chrysler? governments don't own big companies in america. what ruptured? what ruptured is the concern that there is way too much in spending and to be fair, it's not the president's fault. but when you say -- and the combined the billions of dollars, there is one huge massive spending and as a stimulus package. . >> what happens is the republican p
